    Hi, thanks and greetings from Porto,

    Following a MS in UP, I developed a new theory involving metonymies and metaplasms to explain the inception of shapes and colours within coats of arms. Recently it has been tentatively enlarged to other fields as sigillography and vexillology, but keeping the terminologies of the former, to keep it simple. I already dared to approach a "canting level" explanation of the American Flag (along with 19 others) at:
    "Vexillological Sheets: 20 World Flags".
    Unfortunately its perception is complex and I wouldn't recommend it as a starter.
    On the other side, I was lucky to determine also a "forename level" in the design of Stars and Stripes which seems to refer to George (Washington). The consecutive connection of both the metaplasmatic description and the vexillological trace lead us to understand it, in a first approach, as a cotton field. This was a surprise as such personal references appear chiefly in aristocratic representations. Anyway, I should be publishing some analysis' data tomorrow and if any of you is interested enough to comment I'd be very glad to give further input.

    Have a nice Sunday,

    Carlos da Fonte
